Where have i been?
So tech-ed has come and gone and a few things have changed in my life. I have accepted an offer to work at Microsoft. I will be starting on the 1 December 2005, and I am very excited. My new boss is very cool very similar to my old boss even though they vary in age by 20 years. They care about their employees, the push their employees to do the best they can and when need be bang us on the head when we go wrong. That’s all you want from a boss really. One has to know when you go wrong.
Tech-ed was very cool as usual, I found that the more people I present to the less I actually am afraid of presenting. However every time I present I have the butterflies in my stomage and its quite nerve racking. I have these herbal pills called Rescue excellent I use them for local flights (I hate flying) and then I can relax into my normal personality.
Trying to mingle with the delegates I was playing soccer at the valley of the waves and you know what its like its kill the Microsoft team, so I m sitting with no skin on my knee and my left foot. The sand at the fake beach they have at sun city is made up of some serious a$$ granite or something. I learnt my lesson.
Yesterday I got to spend some time with two good friends of mine, watching movies and just relaxing, sometimes that’s all you need. In the week I have been away I think I have had a total of 5 hours of sleep. So this weekend I have to get some serious a$$ sleep. November is going to be a quick and important month for me!
On a sad note one of my best friends is leaving for Wales tomorrow for two months so I will miss him while I move to JHB. He will remain in CPT but tonight we will have a good party :) even though I need some sleep my friends come first.
Anyway lets not end this on an unhappy note – you all have a great day.
